Students

Student's voice

The Holy Spirit University of Kaslik (USEK) places great importance on the academic participation of students in the decision-making process, as it believes that students should contribute to the enhancement of academic programs and to the improvement of students’ campus life and learning experience.

Feedback on the academic experiences of students is communicated through a student representative in each academic unit, which allows students to raise any concerns over academic issues such as course content, teaching methods, assessment criteria, resources, and feedback, and will also provide testimonials of good practice.

Student representatives will report directly to the head of the concerned academic unit/associate dean and director of the Student Affairs Office, and consequently to the president.

Call for Candidacy
By the beginning of each academic year, a call for candidacy will be sent by email to all students. (dates to be defined in the University’s Academic Calendar).
Eligibility
Students considered eligible are those who meet the following criteria:

Undergraduate Students:
  • Have already accomplished 30 credits of their program;
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 75/100 and above;

Selection Process
The selection process for student representatives will be carried out randomly through a draw.

Students wishing to be representatives of their academic unit will be invited to send an email to the Student Affairs Office, within the pre-defined deadlines (mentioned in the Academic Calendar).

All applications will be reviewed by the Deputy President for Students who are eligible for consideration.

Applicants will receive a confirmation email on their eligibility status, which will include all the necessary details relative to the draw (date, time, location…).

The draw session will be attended by the Deputy President for Students, deans, director of the Student Affairs Office and students.

The selected students shall serve for one academic year.

The student has to ensure the conformity to the eligibility criteria during the representation term, in order not to lose the representative status.

The number of the representatives is pre-defined yearly for every academic unit.
Each regional campus should have two student representatives.
